An informative, thoughtful, and funny look at death

An informative, funny, and thoughtful look at a "taboo" subject, Death in the Afternoon is a truly great listen well worth your time. All three hosts are amazing storytellers and teachers, and each episode is crafted and researched with care. I LOVE the secular humanist and progressive viewpoint this podcast takes towards the topic of death. It's a much needed counterbalance to the credulous and derivative formula most of us have come to expect when listening to a show about death. Thank you Caitlin, Sarah, and Louise! I cannot wait for season 3! :)

Always interesting!

Anything with Caitlyn in it is absolutely intriguing! I could listen to her tell stories all day everyday and never get sick of it. She has one of those voices that is so unique yet so calming. She could tell me that she is going to beat the crap out of me and I’d just stand there in a transe like state and just nod and mutter “ooo kkkkk” I just love listening to her. Got hooked the moment I first heard her on Adam Ruins Everything, then I sought out her YouTube channel and now the podcast! Yes!!

It never ends...

After taking a break from this clearly liberal podcast, I decided to give it a listen because it’s trying interesting when she sticks to DEATH and doesn’t go off on her “bad cops, bad white people” road and of course, she’s back at it. Cop shot and killed someone who was trying to DRAG him in his car WHILE he had DRUGS on him (and is high per her saying the car smelled like weed) and somehow the guy is the victim because he is black. WHAT?? These SJW are the reason for the tension with the races...someone needs to remind her she is doing a podcast on death NOT her liberal feelings. I truly can’t stand people who make it political. If I could give this -5 stars, I would.
